Northwest Chapter

For those of you planning for travel to Portland, OR for our ACSM Northwest chapter annual meeting this Fri-Sat, Feb 24-25, we are holding our Annual Meeting as scheduled.  It is apparent that the Portland metro area received significant snowfall Wednesday, perhaps more than many of the areas in our region.  Please check for road and travel advisories and exercise caution in your decisions for winter travel ( cameras are very useful). The forecast is for cold temperatures across much of our region through the weekend, however, relatively less precipitation is forecasted at this time.
